"Though the members disbanded after three albums, their exuberant, gracefully melancholic sound eventually won them hard-core fans, and they're now cited as an alt-rock/emo precursor."
Drew DeNicola's documentary BIG STAR: NOTHING CAN HURT ME traces the history of the highly influential power-pop band Big Star, which was headed by Alex Chilton. The band's three albums provided inspiration to a host of successful artists including R.E.M., The Replacements, and The Flaming Lips. Archival footage of the group is presented along with commentary from those who worked with them, as well as musicians who learned from their few albums.
